I don’t think that is too many. As it is, you’re already combining the mother/son and father/daughter dance, which a lot of people don’t do. I think that’s a really sweet idea and a great way to invovle his little one.

I think three dances is fine! Having your fiance dance with his daughter will be adorable I’m sure!

Maybe you could invite dads to come out on the dance floor with their daughters half way through the song?

Maybe you could start the dances while everyone else is still eating if you’re worried about people getting bored. That way they don’t have to just sit there and watch. It will be like dinner entertainment.

I love the idea of the daddy/daughter dance with your Fiance & his daughter!

If you are concerned about having too many dances in the beginning, you could have the DJ move them into breaks in the first hour or so. Say something like “Ladies and gentlemen, at this time I’d like to invite two very special people up to the dance floor for a special dance…” and then they’ll ask your Fiance & his daughter to come up, or you and your Dad if you want to spread the dances out. I think so long as the DJ is cool with breaking things up like that, it is always an option. You can have your DJ put special dances in the middle of the night.

But otherwise, I don’t think that many dances is a problem up front. I’ve been to receptions that have had the bride/groom, bride/FOB, groom/MOG, and bridal party all in the beginning. That’s not uncommon.

You can always shorten the song a little because when I was out there dancing our first dance with my husband it seemed to take a long time.

Oooh! I like LatteLove’s idea.

But if you want them to have that special song all to themselves, I think three dances is totally ok. =]
